Actually the grip would be the same on a K frame, 38 or 357mag. I have never compared the two but the 22lr variants did not feel noticeably smaller than the 38/357mag K frames. Also I have been shooting a 357mag since I was smaller than most adult woman. Physical size is less important than good training, but the intensity of the round does have a huge factor in follow up shots. Since the weapon is nominally the same size one can train with the less powerful 38 special cartridge and never graduate to the 357mag. That person would still be well armed. That being said in a situation where one has 357mag rounds and a 38 revolver, you are up a creek. You are never going to get the combo to work. In a PAW where ammo selection is much less reliable, it makes since to have the most versatile weapon out there. I have always been interested in the Medusa just for that reason.
